Referring to other riders as d!(^%(#&s doesn't really display Miller's incredible, ready-for-the-big-boy-class maturity.

It's not a big boy class. It's a fast riders class. Actively trying to wreck other riders times seems to me to be the bigger foul.

He seems to be vocalising an opinion that a lot of other riders have, especially in the premier class. Sounds like a pretty dangerous move to me... I'm not going to deny it's a massive part of Moto3, but if your going to look for a tow, use your teammate (which is what Marquez, Rins, Miller and Ajo have been doing) or at least do it in a way that won't risk causing a massive pile-up...

Anyways, I'd like to point out that Rossi - someone nearly twice Miller's age - swears in press conferences on a regular basis, usually over pretty trivial stuff. For Rossi, we call it charming, for Miller, it's brazen and foolish. Double standards much?

EDIT: My bad, I didn't realise that the slower riders were trying to mess up the faster riders' laps on purpose... Sounds like a few d******ds to me.
